Paws help wounded souls


The military has marshalled new recruits to help recovering soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington D.C. Stationed across the street at the Washington Humane Society, the canine corps helps wounded warriers take their minds off their injuries. As part of the program servicemen and women learn about animal training, behavior and grooming. And there's plenty of love all around. Here's the story courtesy of Ohmidog blogger John Woestendiek.
